Electromagnetic Parking Sensors

Does anybody have experience in Electromagnetic parking sensors?
Like this system:
No Holes Parking Sensor | Parking Dynamics Reverse Sensor

I'm looking to install it in the front of my CX 3. It seems pretty easy to dismount the front, for the attachment of the antenna.

Then I have to figure out the best way to connect to 12 volts and the positioning of the on/off button. I would appreciate your suggestions.

I've no actual experience of this type of system, but if it's as good as it says it is, why do the manufacturers continue to use ultrasonic technology rather than electromagnetic?

Have a look at the troubleshooting and fault diagnosis page on the website you quoted. It would seem that installation and weatherproofing the antenna may not be all that straightforward, and the system may be prone to false alarms in heavy rain.

12 volts does not seem too much to ask. Hence, I think it will not be that much of a hassle to fix the power source up. Have you tried tapping from your vehicle own battery so as to reduce the taking up of additional space for an extra voltage supply.
